The first shot has been fired - the Fic Battle will now begin! Full rules and guidelines here (please note the sign-up addition and the last prompt deadline edit), but the quick version is here:

1) Author A replies to this entry with their writing preferences (from here) to start their thread. Minor changes are allowed to preferences, if needed.
2) Prompter 1 replies to Author A's thread with a prompt
3) Author A fills said prompt with at least 300 words of fic and posts it in a reply to Prompter 1's comment.
4) Author A moves on to Prompter 2.
5) Prompter 1 may now give Author A another prompt if they so choose, continuing on until prompts close on Thursday, June 21st at 10am EST (7am PST).
6) Authors have until Thursday, June 21st at 12pm EST (9am PST) to post their fills.

The author with the MOST fills will be the Winner! Any author who fills EVERY prompt they receive will be a Survivor!

A few additional notes:
** The length of the battle is for two reasons: A) varying free time for writing (a work-a-day writer or a weekender), and B) varying writing speeds (a tortoise or a hare).
** As the battle goes on, try to spread your prompts among the authors. If you see an author who has completed all their prompts and there's plenty of time to the end of the battle, help them out!
** No ideas for prompts? Use resources like unfilled prompts at various comment fic memes and fests (even other fandoms which could be adapted), or random story idea generators.
** Anonymous comments are screened for the duration of the battle. Please prompt logged in.

Questions? See the first comment thread below.


CEASE FIRE! The battle is now over! No fills posted past 12:00pm EST will count toward the final totals. Masterpost with winners, survivors and breakdown will go up by tomorrow at noon.

Authors may continue to fill their prompts, just for fun, if they wish! And prompters, please continue to feedback. :)

Annie meets the Beek from the Creek. (Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 crossover)

“Oh, my God, I can’t believe it’s really you!” Annie said, her hand shaking as she held out her planner for James Van Der Beek to sign. “I mean, when I came to visit New York, I knew I’d probably see some famous people, but I never thought I’d actually meet one, and in a coffee shop!”

He took her planner with a charming smile. “I get that a lot.”

“He really does,” his friend, a tall brunette, put in brightly. “It’s kind of annoying.”

“Ahem.” Annie turned around to notice the blonde girl standing behind the register. “James, you’re holding up the line.”

“Sorry, June, it’ll be just a minute.” Annie saw that he was writing quite the novel in the margins of her planner. Her heart fluttered. Dawson was writing in her planner!

“June, have a heart,” the tall girl said dramatically. “Only a few short months ago, this girl was you.”

June huffed. “Chloe, I have a heart. But I also have an empty wallet. And what if my manager sees?”

“Seeing already...” came a bored voice from the kitchen area.

June’s eyebrows rose in vindication.

“I’ll buy something, right now,” Annie said, pulling out her wallet. “I’ll have a cappuccino and...” James was still writing. “...one of those chocolate chip muffins.”

After she paid, James handed back her planner. His fingers brushed hers and she could swear they were tingling. “Thank you!”

“Do you want me to take your picture?” Chloe asked, pointing between Annie and James.

“Sure!” Wouldn’t the gang be jealous?

Chloe took Annie’s things to hold with one hand while snapping a photo with Annie’s phone in the other. “Adorable!” she declared, passing the phone back.

That night at the hotel, Annie tweeted the picture, gushing about how nice James was the best she could with 140 characters. All night, the words he had written floated through her dreams. It wasn’t until the next day that she noticed her purse was $100 lighter.

And in the fall, Jeff showed up for the first day of class in a pair of Beeks.
